Delta Port Third Berth Expansion Project
The Deltaport Third Berth Expansion project earned an award with the American Galvanizers Association in the Industrial category. The Deltaport Third Berth Expansion is a response to rapidly increasing industry demand. With projections indicating a double of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland container traffic in the next ten years, and a tripling in traffic in the next 25 years, Deltaport is planning for the future by both expanding its container handling capacity and by utilizing durable, maintenance-free hot-dip galvanized steel for corrosion protection. The Third Berth Expansion is located in one of the harshest environments, the container racks of the port must withstand the highly corrosive effects of rain, snow, and salty sea air. These hot-dip galvanized steel structures will last 50+ years with little or no maintenance, a factor critical to the ongoing operation of the facility.
